BAS Transformative TA Institute | Session 4 of 6 | Accidents Happen, Why Risk It?


This is session four of the BAS Transformative TA Institute.

This virtual, six-session institute is specifically designed for those in technical assistance (TA) roles, including coaches, mentors, and consultants, who support family child care providers in improving their business and professional practices. The Transformative TA Institute is focused on how to use the Business Administration Scale for Family Child Care (BAS) as a tool for providing technical assistance.

Session 4 | Accidents Happen, Why Risk It?

The uniqueness of family child care offers many rewards; unfortunately, caring for children in the home also comes with many risks. Having a solid risk management plan in place is one of the best ways for a provider to protect their business and keep the children and families they serve safe. In this session, participants will be introduced to some of the major risks providers face when operating a family child care program in the home and will explore policies and procedures to help them reduce and mitigate those risks. Using the BAS as a guide, participants will learn strategies for assisting providers in risk assessment and the development of a comprehensive risk management plan.
